poll showed obama leading romney by three points here, i interviewed govern nor both of them were dismissing public polling saying our models show that the turnout is going to favor republicans. republicans are more enthusiastic. but i went out this morning with some afl-cio organizers. people are talking about turnout. the obama campaign says they've contacted over 120 million vote ners all these battleground states. they have a larger and more sophisticated ground operation. so that's what going on in the end. it's going to come down to turnout. this is a base election. and that's what both campaigns are doing right now is getting their people to vote early, either the obama campaign is doing their famous souls to the polls push tomorrow morning after churches. that's what we're looking at now. >> peter doing some good reporting for us in clumus ohio. still to come, more on the race for the white house. we've got a lot more on the race for the white house. >>> we're also following the aftermath of the superstorm sandy, four days in a shelter with no shower. we're going to take y
the election day, president obama and mitt romney will both be hitting the final battleground states very, very hard. we've got a look at some new polling in a few of these states, "the wall street journal"/nbc/marist poll shows the president with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a very small two-point edge in new hampshire. i'm joined by mark preston live in washington. mark, there's been a lot of talk about the president's handling of hurricane sandy and how it might affect this race. we get a glimpse of what americans think about this handling in a new poll by abc/"washington post." 78% of voters approve of the president's response, 44% say they approve of mitt romney's reaction. neither candidate is seeking to politicize this were tragedy overtly. but it really does beg the question, how could this affect this race? >> it certainly puts the president in the position of being a commander in chief and being the leader at the time of a crisis. and in many ways, he's gotten a lot of support of one of mitt romney's top surrogates, and that's chris c
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti

. romney turned a previously scheduled political rally in ohio in to a relief effort. both candidates are trying to stay visible and yet appropriate with seven days to go in the campaign. what does this all do to the race? we look at what is done to help the victims of the monster storm. national guard and red cross are out in force. "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern. now back to new york with my colleagues at "the five." ♪ ♪ >> kimberly: september, the consulate was under siege and tyrone woods ignored orders to go in for help and he was killed hours later. his father spoke to sean hannity last night about how the white house handled the situation. >> obviously, people in the white house were watching watched this happen. their cries for help. the order don't help them at all, let them die. whoever that might be. you have blood of my son on your hands. i still forgive you. you need to stand up. >> eric: in an interview, president obama addressed allegations that the administration has been misleading the american people. >> i take offense that in any way we haven't tried to
is going from both campaigns, does it mean they're more up for grabs? >> bob: romney spread out the electoral map no question about it. if obama were to lose minnesota, it would be a landslide for romney. they have to send him in to shore things up. he will get to colorado where he needs to be. what romney, though, is missing here is a lot of campaign events in ohio, which he desperately needs. >> dana: that's where he was today. >> bob: but he was doing fundraising there. which is fine. but he needs to do the rallies and other things. anytime you freeze something, it doesn't actually mean you come back to where it was when you froze it. >> eric: no, but it doesn't mean the momentum changes back. face it, president obama has had the best success at changing the polling. when he goes negative. when his negative ads about romney for bain capital. >> kimberly: that's when he was ahead. >> eric: he was a murderer. that's when he gets movem. he can't do that now. you have can't go negative now. >> bob: are you suggesting that romney hasn't attacked obama negatively? one thing we shou
to the finish and mi both mitt romney and obama focusing on ohio. tracie potts has the latest on the race. >> reporter: good morning. take a look at these scheduled. it is clear, they will be very busy. governor romney on sunday alone is visiting four states in one day. the rest of the candidates will be in ohio 12 times between now and election day. both of them in ohio today. governor romney making visits to seven states between now and tuesday, tonight in ohio, he will be joined by 100 other politicians and celebrities backing his campaign. president obama, every single day between now and tuesday in ohio. both making closing arguments to voters. >> that's why i know what real change looks like. because i fought for it. i've got the scars to prove it. i've got gray hair to show for it. you fought for it too. and after all that we've been through together, we sure as heck can't give up now. >> look, the obama campaign is out there chanting. i drove by a group of protester, and they said four more years. we have our own chant. it's five more days, all right? >> candidates and a lot of vo
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
, but this is a classic swing state and we have a dead heat. the president's getting the democrats. governor romney's getting the republicans so you want to look at the middle. 48% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in sena cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting
previously told you sandy also suspended the campaigns of both mitt romney and president obama. how could this actually change the election? let's ask our personal finance expert vera gibbons who has been taking a look at this. market closed again today hopefully reopen tomorrow. let's talk about the impact on the presidential election. >> we have all of these canceled events. about 30 events canceled sings saturday we are resaying their schedules now. any kind of disruptions this late in the game as close as this one is significant. you have to put safety heyed of politics but never the less a lot of bumps in the road. >> if they gant get out. >> the point is to activate voters energize them and get to the polls. >> then there's the issue if power disruptions continue could not be open next. >> there could be voting disruptions. if we have the power outages they last a significant amount of time you have ballot issues accounting issues, you have delays all sorts of things to contend with. general chaos. beyond that you have the basic di disruptions here fallen trees, branchs, power lines
is not the right guy for another four years. >> first, i truly believe that both president obama and mitt romney want to do a grand bargain, but i don't think they have the same leadership ability to get it done. i think president obama's biggest problem is he's not led. and when he had the senate, the house and the white house, he spent too much time on the affordable care act. that poisoned washington, because even though a majority of the american people doesn't want the affordable care act, nonetheless the effort was taken to pass it on a straight party line vote. that poisoned the well. i think the worst of all scenarios is the house stays in republican hands which it's going to. the senate stays in democratic hands and president obama stays in the white house. we haven't gotten any progress on that in the last two years. why do you think it's different in the next two years? by the way, it's likely that the reps take the senate in 2014. so i think you have to be recognizing reality. it's not just who the president is, although that's by far the most important. it's also who controls the ho
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
an impact on both president obama and mitt romney's campaigns. i want to welcome ken rogoff to our panel, harvard university professor of economics and public policy. we'll begin, sir, though, with christine romans. let's talk about how they crunch these numbers. >> the jobs report is actually two sprit surveys, unemployment rate comes from a survey of 60,000 households. the job creation number comes from a survey of 141,000 businesses. to get the unemployment rate, 200 census workers interview 60,000 households in person and over the phone. everyone over the age of 16 is classified as employed, unemp y unemployed or not in the labor force. from that then the government extrapolates the unemployment rate. job creation number comes from another sample, sample of 141,000 businesses. they tell the government how many workers they have on their payroll. like the household survey, the sample is meant to include the whole u.s., including offices, stores. both surveys look the a particular week or pay period usually around the 12th day of the month. this month it was the week of october 7th to
candidates think are important, both mitt romney and paul ryan going to pennsylvania. that state. does that mean you're in trouble there in pennsylvania? >> no. i think it means the romney/ryan campaign is desperate to try to figure out how to win this race outside of the states that they've been contesting for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time
messages so far, both attacking governor romney. we'll debate what and who is behind these messages, right after this break. >> i have four generations of family on this earth and my life has been very blessed, and if the republicans steal this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him -- megyn: fox news alert on a little bit of good news for the more than 9 million people commuting in and out of new york city. the governor just announced there will be some limited service on the two commuter rail systems in and out much new york later today. but officials are estimating full service will not be fully restored for weeks if not months. and this could have a big impact even beyond the borders of the big apple. trace gallagher is live with the update. >> reporter: nobody knows which service will come online tomorrow or the day after. in the tristate area people use this every day. the transportation authority said of the 5,000 square miles they cover, not a single corner went untouched. 36 hours after the floodwaters came into the subway stations, the floodwaters remain. the e
john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
days for both governor romney and president as well. the president staying off the campaign trail today, staying at the white house. he has done a few teleconferences. we're hearing briefing happening here because of the storm. mitt romney staying in ohio. he set up in some of his centers. we heard from the republican national committee yesterday, they're turning some of their campaign centers to collect canned goods and donations as you heard the governor talk about today. we'll keep an eye on all that is happening in the campaign trail. it has become a little bit of a second thought, jon, to what is going on here. here we are, a week away from the election. jon: we have such massive work ahead in this country, it seems, you know, make as political campaign seem a little bit pet te -- petty. jon: the streets are flooded in maryland, filled with debris in many places. a superstorm blitzing the area overnight with wind gusts over 65 miles an hour. ocean city experiencing destruction shn the historic pier on the boardwalk. some say conditions are worst they have ever seen. we have the dir
right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at
on the campaign trail as well. both president obama and mitt romney cancelling campaign events yesterday and today. at a rally in florida yesterday, paul ryan urged supporters to lend a hand to all the storm victims. >> let's send our prayers and our thoughts to the people in the northeast. floridians, you are no stranger to big storms. you know better than anyone on the need for communities to come together and for neighbors to help one another. >> first lady michelle obama at a campaign event in iowa city says the president is putting his political schedule on hold because sandy is his priority. >>> and west virginiaens are expected to get hammered by heavy and wet snow. sandy's not sparing anyone. as much as three feet of it is expected in higher elevations and a blizzard warning is in effect for ten counties there. the snow threatens to bring down power lines and people are being advised as they are here to stay indoors, soledad. >> what a mess. what a mess. zoraida, thank you for the update. we take a short break. within we come back on the other side, we tell you what's happening with that m
. great to have both of you with us. nina, you first. mitt romney knows these ads are lies and he is still running them. what does it say about him, his campaign and also the intelligence of ohio voters not to differentiate -- be able to differentiate between the lies and the truth? >> he has no shame and no soul. if you're lying in the beginning you'll be lying in the end and shows a sense of desperation to try invoke fear. they know good and dag gone well that the president threw a life line out to the auto industry whereby one of every eight jobs in ohio over 850,000 jobs aristic willed to that industry and for them to try to scare the citizens is despicable. we won't forget this is the game governor that joined forces prosecutor with the republicans and supported senate bill 5 which would have taken away collective bargaining rights. gm will invest $500 million into that plant, ed. he is lying in the beginning and he'll be lying all the way through this. >> i don't think the obama campaign could hand a better script to the romney people and say, here, do this and implode in the state o
affected. both candidates are off the trail. mitt romney may show up as close as new jersey. >> gretchen: the president says he needs four more years to fix the economy. what has he accomplished over the first four years? we will take a closer look. charles gasparino from the "fox business" network with startling numbers just ahead. >> steve: and then a daring rescue after more than a dozen people on a replica ship made for a movie were stranded at sea. one of the brave heros who rescued 14 of those crew members will join us live bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race. no need to get nasty. here's your "honk if you had an affair with taylor" yard sign. looks good.

. and sandy has blown both candidates off course. here is jonathan karl. >> reporter: mitt romney transformed the planned ohio rally into a bid to support relief efforts. >> we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort. one of the things i learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has trappings of a traditional campaign event, stage, big american flag, campaign music, lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for vick,ti of the storm. the storm put romneyen a bind. while the president can lead relief efforts. >> this is something heartbreaking for the nation. >> reporter: there is not much for romney to do beyond encouraging supporters to pitch in. with fema working overtime, democrats are hammering him for what he said at a debate when asked if some of fema's responsibilities should be turned over to the states. >> abslaugolutely. any team you have occasion to take something from the federal government and send back to the states that is the right direction. if you can go back and send it
. >>> and after something of a hiatus for the storm, both president obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail by the end of the week. mitt romney is back on the trail today. >> let's bring back former senior adviser to president clinton and newyorker.com writer richard socarides and cnn contributor and columnist, will cain. so both candidates back on the trail this week. how do you think the storms will affect the race? and you know the early voting. >> you know, i don't know that it will have any big impact logistically, zoraida, on how the election plays out. most of the early voting states didn't have in-person early voting anyway. but i don't think it's going to have any big effect on the election. you talk about a hiatus, both of you mentioned it, john and zoraida. i think it's a little bit of a healthy hiatus. obviously we're not talking about the storm being a good thing. but to stop the constant cycle of did you hear this gaffe, and oh, my gosh on the campaign trail. step back for a moment, remember real life and ask yourself, what's really important regarding th
minute october surprise in the presidential race. both the president and governor romney's campaigns forced to readjust their schedules. >> coming up we'll talk about the potential fallout on the race with nobody really knows with just eight days until the election. >> but first let's go to stephanie goss in narragansett, rhode island. good morning again. >> reporter: good morning. they said it was is going to get nastier and it is. the wind has picked up. we're getting bands of rain and just look at how angry that ocean is. you consider the fact that the eye of this storm will pass hundreds of miles from here. you get an idea of how big it is. it's remarkable to see surf like that, even more remarkable when you consider just beneath it is a beach that people were sun bathing on just this summer. so far they've already had some school closures across the state and power outages for some, 2700 people. off the coast they are reporting 17 a1/2 foot swells. they shut down the ferries. public transportation has been shut down in rhode island. we're obviously not through the worst it. the
, arguing the sta states, even the private sector should take the lead today, romney put out a written statement reaffirming the belief, also vowing that fema would have the resources it needs. one more note, there are polls out and both campaigns say they are in the lead right now. the new polls, the president is clinging to a tight lead in the crucial battlegrounds of ohio, florida, and virginia. >> all right, peter alexander in florida tonight. of course, it was all we were talking about until this storm that stretched over darn near half the country. our political director, chief white house correspondent chuck todd traveled with the president today in the skies over new jersey. he is back on the ground in atlantic city tonight and chuck it is a fair question on how everybody is going to get to vote. you take the polling close to our place here, there is sand in the streets. i can't imagine they will be ready with power back on. there is natural gas in the air, it still feels dangerous? >> reporter: right, look, they're not going to be ready, but that doesn't mean they won't put th
northwesterly materialized. >> shepard: change in the works here. either the romney campaign sees an opening in three states that look like obama states or trying to get obama campaign to spend money in those states or maybe both. what is it? >> talking about three predominantly blue states won by president obama where the polls have always trended towards democrats this year. not towards mr. romney and the g.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground and come within the margin of error in those states and now he has begun to advertise. these are states the obama campaign is very very confident about. david action sell rod said he would shave his mustache off if he lost any of them. that's a staches has had for 40 years. tough hurdle for mr. romney to clear in ohio. in the last 48 hours or so there have been seven polls. all of them have suggested that mr. obama is up within the margin of error by a couple of points on mitt romney. most scenarios, romney can't win w
romney, seems to be okay as far as disaster relief is concerned. both of these men, the governor and the president are trying to stay above politics for now at least, trying to do what is best for the people of new jersey and new york, some of the other states obviously that have been affected by this disaster and it is a real disaster. all of these leaders, they're working around the clock to do the best they can under these difficult circumstances. >> i think we have some of the comments that governor christie made. let's play that. >> i was on the phone at midnight again last night with the president, personally. he expedited designation of new jersey as a major disaster area. i was on the phone with fema at 2:00 a.m. this morning to answer the questions they needed answers, to get that designation. and the president has been outstanding. >> wolf, this really had an impact on the campaigns for both president obama and for mitt romney. >> the president not going to campaign tomorrow. i think he will resume his campaigning on thursday. it is sort of froze at least at the top lev
of unity, both from mitt romney and the president, appealing to that sense of unity, no doubt prompted as you point out at least in part to the east coast disaster. do you expect between now and tuesday they'll remove the gloves again? >> reporter: i think the gloves will be removed, particularly because we're seeinging t inthe unprecedented impact of outside money. we already saw one flyer in virginia, associated with apparently americans for tax reform, that tried to politicize the storm. so the outside groups and the outside money, you're going to see an uptick in dirty tricks in part because it is dirty money that is flowing through the election system. the candidates may try to stay out of the fray, but the outside groups will be more than willing to take off the gloves and fight hard because this is a war of attrition now, this fight is so close that it comes down to every vote. it is a game of inches. >> with the close fight, it has been days since we have looked at polls. so in the name of getting our bearings here, we have a poll today, a three-swing state, this is in new york
the romney evideneffort and how it transpid today? holding this evident to raise both funds and food stuff, and kind of, you know, talk about giving and how that played today? >> what else do you do? >> bret: right. >> a moment fraught with peril for the challenger particularly. you don't want to be accused and the press is a hair trigger when it comes to accusing romney of misusing the moment. >> bret: then he did today. >> of course, but you don't want to be accused. that is fair or unfair. >> every day i wake up for two weeks and say maybe it's frozen in stone. maybe the race is already decided. i don't know the outcome but the people who don't know who they are going to vote for and/or going to vote could if it in this room and not touch each other. it's possible that none of this matters. >> bret: yeah. if the race is frozen, you look at how many states say the early vote, chuck, has been overwhelming. some report says 40% of the state early vote. >> i don't know if it's true that we four are the remaining people to decide. tucker is probably right. you could fit the undecided people
